This is sound advice. I suppose what matters most is how long you plan to wait to buy a PS5. I don't plan to get one for at least the next two years. Part of this is the supply issue (I'm not hunting for a console - don't care enough and have far better things to do), but mostly I pick up new consoles after there are at least 50 games I want on it. PS5 has a while to go to get there.

So for me, I'll pick up PS4 versions of PS5 games, especially if they're at a reasonable price.

Apparently, Sony is going to continue making PS4s this year, so it's still a viable system to own.

I always try to get the slim versions but that's just me. I typically wait to pick up the phat ones when they clearance them out though.

I’m on the same train of thought. I’m in no hurry to get a PS5 considering (1) the library isn’t super extensive right now, (2) my backlog of just PS4 games is laughingly large, and (3) I want to take advantage of the 2TB SSD I just installed in my PS4 Pro.

Black Pumas 1.jpg Black Pumas 2.jpg


heads up, the vinyl seems to have hit the holy grail of 70% clearance level, crazy cuz I been having my eye on the Black Puma album since October or so..

been watchn for that album to drop down to 70% clearance level so can't believe my luck yesterday when I found it.. Didn't think it would hit, but guess patience and LUCK pays off

first it was $24.50 (30%)
then it was $17.50 (50%)
then it hit the HOLY GRAIL 70% CLeARANCE level man....

thats crazy, cuz that rarely happens, usually they destroy product before it gets that far or "donate" to Goodwill.

Funny cuz at my local Target, they have that same album for $34.99, and even tho there is a spot on the shelf for it, the Target app in store says that the album is not carried in my store and sold ONLINE ONLY. Target inventory system definitely all types of messed up...

Black Pumas - Colors (Official Live Session)


^^ thats the song that put me on these guys.. if that song don't do NADA for you, then ya ain't HUMAN

and this is me saying that, a DIE hard Gansta-RAP and Oldies fan, in other words I don't listen to country music...

RUN.. Don't walk


oNe


p.s. don't know much bout Imagine Dragons, but I would have spent more on a cancelled burger nite out date then the $5.99 it cost me so I took a chance on it.

Any other vinyl on clearance?

Just did a quick run-through at our local Target.   No 50% off or clearance discount signs in or around video games, but a few games were ringing up for less than marked when taken to the price-check at the end of the aisle.

 

Picked up:
PS4: Dark Alliance (Marked $30, rang up $12)
(Brickseek is bringing up the wrong info; it brings up a different title called Yomawari Midnight Shadows?   UPC is 816819018583 and DPCI is 207-34-0306.)

PS4: Trover Saves the Universe (Marked $30, rang up $9.99)
https://brickseek.co...sku=207-34-0289

PS4: Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 (Marked $30, rang up $9.99)
https://brickseek.co...sku=207-34-9404

XB1: Wolfenstein Youngblood Deluxe Edition (Marked $40, rang up $19.99)
https://brickseek.co...sku=207-32-2049

XB1: World of Final Fantasy (Marked $30, rang up $0)
https://brickseek.co...sku=207-32-0192

World of Final Fantasy was ringing up $0.00, so we took it to checkout to see what would happen.  The cashier keyed in the $29.99 price on the sticker, and we made mention that it wasn't scanning for that price.  She flagged over a manager, and they both scanned it a couple times before the manager said she'd let me have it for $7.98.  YMMV, of course.

As mentioned a couple of days ago that's an item designated to be pulled for salvage. As you discovered they may still be able to come up with a real price and sell it at their discretion, though it's very much YMMV as you pointed out.

In this case it wouldn't let you check the item out anyway.

Every time I scan an item and it comes up $0.00 my stupid ass brain goes "ooh, maybe...?" for like .5 seconds

Popped up at a store I had already visited previously. They must have pulled it out of the back or something because it wasn't there before.

Sorry for being a bit off topic but has anyone done the $8 two year warranties on controllers? (The warranty that’s thru Allstate). Just curious if it’s worth it to put it on a PS5 controller or if it’s a pain in the ass to deal with if the controller does break.

Anecdotally on the insurance. We had a TV that died and had the Allstate insurance on it, they had us do some diagnostic stuff, then take some pics of the error and send them. They then just gave us back the full amount of what we paid on the TV, but not the $30 we spent on the insurance. It was a pretty painless process. We got the approval on the phone and the check within 7 days.

Okay good to know thanks. I’ll get it when I pick up the blue PS5 controller.

its probably an adjustment as the b1g1 promo is regarding the free art thing it comes with

That'd be my guess as well that it's due to the freebie item.

As I mentioned earlier here for a similar promo for another title, this sort of thing is people misconstruing the situation. It's actually supposed to be get a free bonus/swag item with purchase of the game, NOT buy 1 get 1 free on the game itself, so adjust your expectations accordingly. Bottom line, if at Target they do the latter then they are making a mistake and are fools.

Honestly, In the Small  portable Price Checker Unit it show up Buy 1 get 1 Free.  I refer you call  your local Target customer service & give them DPCI # 207-30-2389 to see the item instock or not.  If yes, you can ask  them on hold  (2 copies) of Arcues  and tell them you be there in 10-30 minutes to pick it up. Also, ask it's still on sale for  Buy 1 get 1 Free ?  If they say Yes... whenever you pick up the 2 copies they will look it up at the Portable Price Checker Unit and do price adjustment Buy 1 get 1 for $0.01 or 50% off on both copies.

 

Do not greedy ask for FREE ITEM.

Pfft, all in or nothing I say. Can always swap a game later so you're not stuck trading/selling the extra copy. I don't even buy many games anymore so it's a bit weird for me to feel muted on a sweet deal like this.
